Matias Ayala

Executive Chef at City Centre Rotana Doha


Argentinean native Chef Matias received his love of cooking from his father and when it was time for him to choose a career the decision was an easy one. He studied in his hometown and later moved to Buenos Aires where he had his first experience in fine dining in the Orien Express Hotel as Chef de Partie and later at the Palacia Duhau Park Hyatt.

It was with the Hyatt group of hotels that Chef  Matias was able to broaden his horizons and moved to New Zealand where he was able to refine his palate to international standards and moved to the UAE in 2011 as a Sous Chef in the iconic Burj Al Arab where he was able to work with some of the best produce available worldwide on a daily basis. 

In 2012 Chef Matias joined the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort as Chef de Cuisine for the South American steakhouse Pachanga which has been shortlisted as “Best South American Restaurant in Dubai” 2012-13 from Time Out Dubai and opened the award-winning Pure Sky Lounge & Dining at Hilton Dubai The Walk. He currently holds the position of excutive chef at City Centre Rotana Doha.
